Ok, so it's been a while. What's little me doing? Busy sailing in first life, and busy looking after the kids. Well, and playing Minecraft with them, but this... this deserves a comment.

Anyone read Scuttlebutt? Do it now - Read Scuttlebutt - click here!
And let me again refer to Jane Fossets quote! She said it first, and she said it best:
"Weird plastic critters skittering across the water". (- Jane Fosset)
Amen to that!
Here's a few burst from that Scuttlebutt post - and they are about the Americas Cup and the (current) boats:
- Complete irrelevance
- Bizarre sideshow
- Seems to be a bit of action missing
- this diminishes the spectacle of the sport
- most exiting part is when they fall off the foils
- light wind foiling is really boring
Let's put the sailing back into sailing. Get real boats. Use real rules. Make sailing relevant to sailors - not to lawyers and crazy scientists.
Where is Heinz Doofenshmirtz, when you need a new type of Inator to stop the madness in Americas Cup? Let's have a MadRaceInator!

Happy sailing and Strawberry Margaritas.
